Western Bulldogs vs Hawthorn Preview

The Western Bulldogs and Hawthorn head to Docklands on Sunday afternoon with eight points separating the 17th placed Hawks and 11th placed Dogs.

There’s no doubt that there is more on the line for the Western Bulldogs with plenty of pressure being put on coach Luke Beveridge after a lackluster start to the year so far.

The Hawks have had the wood over the Dogs for quite a while and they have managed 12 wins from their last 18 encounters including a three point win in August last year.

Hawthorn surged home late against the Pies to be narrowly defeated by five points.

They bounced back from a disappointing 53 point loss to the Suns by notching their first win over North Melbourne and they come into this off another bad loss to the Swans last week.

Can they bounce back again?
